Snapper (Red) Fishing in Galveston

Galveston is emerging as the runner up in Gulf Red Snapper fishing hotspots, with large fish available to target during summer in nearshore state waters (up to 10.35 miles out) at depths of around 120ft and more. Federal waters can be fished recreationally in June, but only for a short time frame (about 10 days, depending on the annual regulations).
 
During colder months, Snappers move farther out, at least 20 miles offshore, effectively disabling recreational angling from taking place. However, during this time, a number of catch share programs are available to sportfishers. These are offered by commercial fishermen as alternatives that allow going on trips and catching Red Snapper for free, with the option of purchasing fish from the landings afterwards.

What People Are Saying About Snapper (Red) Fishing in Galveston

"Full day trip with Captain Jason"

Amy Hudson fished with Galveston Fishing Charter Company on March 24, 2019

Early in the season, but we had a blast. Caught some snapper and our two red drum. It was a fantastic day on the water and Captain Jason took great care of us.

"Review with Captain Shannon"

Charles Schuh fished with Galveston Offshore on June 13, 2018

Great boat, equipment, and captain! He dealt with the choppy water situation and worked hard to get my husband and his friend where they could catch red snapper and king mackeral. Captain Shannon made sure every effort was made to catch desired fish. Fish cleaning crew was great as well.

"Offshore trip with Captain Shannon "

Justin Stephens fished with Galveston Offshore on July 17, 2017

By far the best, offshore fishing experience I've ever had. We limited out on Red Snapper 12+ lbs in no time at all. We trolled for some king and caught are fair share of kingfish, Jack Crevalle. We finished off our trip with catching a monster 55" 44 lb Ling. Was an amazing fishing experience. Thanks again Captain Shannon.
